Dreams - What They Are and Their Function
Dreams are a succession of images, actions and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind primarily during the REM stage of sleep. Dreams are unbiased, spontaneous products of the unconscious, outside the control of conscious will. The act of dreaming is physical but the contents of dreams is psychological. They are NATURAL expressions of the dreamer's emotional/personal life illustrating experiences that possess strong emotional energies. Although there are literal applications in dreams the primarily language is symbolic, metaphorical of the dreamer's emotional energies.
  • 1. Dreams are about the emotions, emotional energies of the person who is dreaming. They offer advice and a deeper understanding of our waking life as well as the foundations for the emotional energies of the dreamer.

  • 2. The language of dreams is symbolic, but also with literal applications {literal waking experinces}. The symbolic images and actions are metaphors for the patterns or motifs for the dreamer's emotional/psychological/physical life. Every character in a dream is a different aspect of an unacknowledged aspect of the dreamer and/or a prevalent situation in the person's life involving actual persons/experiences {dreams will address both aspects}.

  • 3. The purpose and function of dreams is to guide the conscious self to achieve wholeness and offer a solution to the problems in waking life. Solutions to problems and conflicts from everyday life, as well as the deeper underlying issues, 'emotional injuries' that stem from the foundations of the dreamer {early life experiences and trama experiences in life}.
    ---Dreams attempt to reveal the authentic emotions and feelings that are often concealed from the conscious mind.
    ---Dreams compensate for conscious attitudes and personality traits that are out of balance.

  • 4. Dreams are intentional. Nature provides us with dreams to understand and help heal emotional conflicts/issues. Just as the body has the immune system to heal and protect, the psych{ology} has the dream.

  • 5. Dreams possess 'Archteypal' representations. Archetypes are universal, original patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious and are the psychic counterpart of instinct. An archetype is an inherited tendency of the human mind to form representations of mythological motifs-representations of the symbolic images/actions without losing their basic emotional pattern. Dreams and mythology share the same archetypal images, myths as illustrations of the universal patterns and dreams as illustrations of personal patterns.

  • 6. All dreams have at least two meanings or applications. One is the symbolic representation, metaphorical of the emotional energies, and the second being a literal application where a person, place or experience is addressing a real life experience.

    Dr Phil

    Hi,
    Someone whom I chat to on the the internet (a girl) said she dreamt of me on TV. I was on the Dr Phil show and Dr Phil said I was a teacher and was becoming a footballer (soccer player, for u guys). Then the girl in her dream ran up to the TV to see me, and then I was gone.

    What does it mean?? Does it have to do with her? Does this dream reflect anything on in my reality?? I checked what soccer meant at dreammoods.com and it suggested something to do with sexuality, and that's a bit unnerving. And the teacher part said I would give others advise??

    Waiting for some insight :)

    Re: Dr Phil

    If it was her dream then it would be mostly about her.
    Dreaming about a doctor may represent a need for physical, emotional, or spiritual healing.
    If you are a teacher in her dream, it means that you know some things better than others and tend to lecture people.
    The dream could be addressing your issues with authority and approval.
    cant find anything on soccer but as to "becoming" a sport player/ball player, dreaming of playing games traditionally means a time of relaxation and ease, wherein one can regather his or her resources.

    But in this day and age, it could be a pun, indicating that someone is “playing games” with you. Watching a game hints at feelings of being on the outside looking in—or possibly feelings that you’re sitting on the sidelines while life passes you by.

    "Then the girl in her dream ran up to the TV to see me, and then I was gone"

    could the girl be her?

    Re: Dr Phil

    Oh sorry wasn't clear. This girl, lets call her Louise for example, dreamt of me and Dr Phil (u heard of him?? he's kinda famous)on TV. Dr Phil said to me that I was a teacher who was becoming a football player. Then Louise heard this/wanted to pay more attention to the TV, like ran up to it, and then I was gone.

    Does it make it any clearer?

    Re: Dr Phil

    Mo,
    julz is correct. If the girl had the dream then the dream is about her. The best you can do in the dream is be a part of a relationship with her. Her age would be important. Let's assume she is your age.

    Again julz points out some good possibilities. Dr. Phil is a psychologist. Since the dream would be primarily about the girl {and not you}, that may suggest an emotional attachment of some sort {psychologists deal with the emotions}. Of course as of late Dr. Phil has had some bad press {the episode with Brittany Spears being one} so 'Louise's' impressions of Dr. Phil could play a role in the dream scenario.

    The teacher/footballer part of the dream may suggest her impressions of you. A teacher would be someone who influences people in a positive way. For a girl a footballer may be less so, more so a roughian. Her running up to the TV {her emotions on display} and you being gone, that may indicate her first impressions of you have disappeared. Has there been a disconnect of some kind between you and her which would change her mind/attitude about you?

    I don't see anything in the dream that would indicate any sexual associations. Unless of course the change of mind had to do with 'sexual advances' on your part {which i don't see in the dream}. Is that a possible reason for her change of attitude?

    julz. Very good instincts. For a very long time, when I first started interpreting dreams, I used dream dictionaries {the sort I have at MDS and not the asinine types found in many dream books} as a primary resource. They provided me with an understanding of the possibilities of dream symbols and their applications. I still use them as a 'refresher'. I suggest you continue to use them while you study Jung's approach to dreams. You have good intuitive insights {very important for anyone who wishes to interpret dreams}. Intuitiveness is a 'feminine' aspect of the psyche. And that fits perfectly with someone who has one foot in the masculine world and another in the feminine {you know what I mean}. If you use that as a positive you will be utilizing the best of who you are in a positive and constructive way.

    Re: Dr Phil

    Okay I'll paste from dreammoods.com it says:

    "To dream that you are playing soccer, suggests that you are suppressing your sexuality and/or aggression and expressing it in a more socially acceptable manner. From a Freudian perspective, sports, in general, serve as a disguise for attitudes about sex as a aggressive act. Hence soccer can be seen as a pun for "sock her". Alternatively, the game of soccer may refer to how you function and run your life when confronted with challenges. It is symbolic of your competency, integrity, strengths and weaknesses. "

    The girl is aged 18. I asked her about her opinion on Dr Phil she said "well he sux! and i think all his episodes r actin, aint real!" :/ Says alot...

    Regarding sexual advances on my part, no way, none at all lol.

    This girl does look at me in a romantic way and recently I have been a lil bit harsh with her, which might explain the footballer part??

    Hope this helps

    Re: Dr Phil

    Mo,
    To address the meaning of soccer found at DreamMoods {it is the same explanation as found at HyperDictionary, word for word}. It is a stretch to associate soccer with sexuality just because it is a sport. Besides that Freud has to be taken with a grain of salt. Everything about Freud was sexual or pseudo sexual. It was one of the primary reasons Jung broke from Freud, unable to accept Freud's sexual-centricity of psychoanalysis.

    Sigmund Freud saw the prime mover of the unconscious as sexual energy or libido.
    Alfred Adler made it the drive for power to overcome inferiority feelings.
    Jung divided the unconscious into two layers. Within one, relatively superficial, he gave libido and the power drive less ambitious roles. In the second and far deeper stratum, he perceived the force of the primeval, collective unconscious of the human race.

    Her reaction to Dr. Phil {which closely mirrors how I feel about him} has to be taken in consideration. And we must remember the dream is about her, and not you. You are merely a secondary relationship at best. The footballer would have to do with her psyche. It is her 'reality, not yours.
    I don't see anything within the dream that makes me believe it is about sex. My take is going from teacher to footballer is a regression. After she approached the TV you were gone. You regress to a lesser role, and then disappear. I would want to know what that may be about {in her mind}.

    Re: Dr Phil

    Mo, No matter what she thinks of Dr.Phil in real life still doesn't change what he represent in her dream (psychologists who deals with emotions)her emotions..

    .And as Dr.Phil butting in announcing that your a teacher BECOMMING a football player(soccer player)Dr.Phil is letting her know her "feelings of emotions" towards you perhaps?
    Can you see the two different change of a TEACHER SUDDELY BECOMMING A SOCCER PLAYER? Could this also represent personality changed that she notice another side of you?

    You in her dream as a teacher maybe as to what she thought of you at first.A teacher(person) who she respect, look up to,rely on.

    (BECOMMING)

    SOCCER may refer to both of you to how she function and run her life when confronted with challenges integrity, strengths and weaknesses and the part you come in is your harsh words,right!


    Then Louise heard this/wanted to pay more attention to the TV, like ran up to it, and then I was gone.


    Im gonna go on a limb here even if im wrong. I think her subconscious wants her to pay attention to her feelings. notice "she wanted to",but decides not to in real life beacause she knows if she does then you will dissapear in her life.Which is why the ending is the way it is..does that make sence.lol
